I currently serve on the board of Cornerstone Doula Trainings and am a Perinatal Educator at both Kaiser and Then Comes Baby in Oakland.
In person OR Virtual services! I offer 3 prenatal appointments to go over your birth preferences, provide evidence-based information you're interested in, go over all the ways I'll support you during labor and birth, join you when I'm needed for labor support, help you to know when it's time to go to the hospital or call the midwife, assist through your baby being born, as well as with breastfeeding (should you desire to do so), plus one postpartum visit.
Oakland, CA Service range 20 miles I serve only the East Bay Area.
Elyse was a brilliant combination of heart and practicality. She was very organized and informative leading up to our labor, and stuck with us the entire time in the 86 hours between water releasing and birth! Elyse even slept on the hospital room floor! Her knowledge, temperament, and commitment to supporting us made a very stressful experience DOABLE, and we can't recommend her highly enough.
